Sector 2 Balurcos – Furnazinhas

This 2nd sector of the Via Algarviana starts at Balurcos, a small village in the municipality of Alcoutim. From the village centre, the track leads the hiker to south, along rural paths, many of which are flanked by walls surrounding small properties where subsistence agriculture can still be seen. The track is initially flat, but soon becomes steeper. You can see the typical traces of the “Serra Algarvia”, with numerous ravines and water courses.
